The New Flaming Lips Album Is Designed to be Played at the Same Time as Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon

Never let it be said that the Flaming Lips are anything less than uber-weird–but it a very pleasant sort of way.

Not satisfied with just covering Dark Side of the Moon song-for-song, the Lips have released a new album entitled The Flaming Side of the Moon which they say needs to be played simultaneously with the original release from Pink Floyd.

What does that sound like? Let’s try it out.  I did–and it works incredibly well.
